to the political cliche of low-hanging fruit is something so cartoon h cartoonishly insensitive, so cartoonishly villainous, you then bring upon us a second political cliche. you have jumped the shark. blocking voluntary efforts by people to get rid of their own guns because they want to voluntarily? that is an exercise in shark jumping. this is the sort of thing that might make sense internally to the nra when they talk about this amongsts, but the rest of the the country are not picking a fight, but looking for problem solving, nonconfrontational ways to help each other out. trying to block the voluntary tucson gun buy-back program does not make sense. the whole reason gun policy is supposed to be seen as so intractable, so unreformable, so politically untouchable and not in america is that the national rifle association has created a mystique about themselves, a mystique about their own power that is supposed to caution anyone who might want to reform gun laws that it just cannot be done. no matter who we are, no matter where we live, no matter how or why we might want to reform our gun laws,
cliche but talk about a nanny state? and you know, not to be unsympathetic this goes way too far. and not only are the floodgates of litigation now going to be wide open, you about this opens up a pandora's box, neil. what is next? is long hair will be considered a disability? short hair? i mean we can not allow this to take place. neil: what is your big worry? what is your big worry? what will happen? >> let me put it you like this, food allergies are n, excuse me, they are individualized unlike other disabilities rightly recognized by the ada, deafness, blindness. people paralyzed and wheelchair-bound. with food allergies there are thousands and thousands and thousands of them. how are restaurants, schools, places of public accommodation going to be required to accommodate each and every individual's allergies? it is not plausible. it is going to be way too burdensome and costly. ultimately it is going to drive businesses to shutdowns and schools to stop providing food to their students. neil: nicole, haven't we already seen something like this already going on at schools? in
as cliche. very traditional and mrs. obama has proven herself to be very untraditional when it comes to fashion. i was surprised that she chose such an expected color. >> we certainly saw that with the outfit earlier today, the dress and the coat by thom browne. you got the exclusive look at jason wu's sketch. >> did i and it is quite extraordinary to look at it. knowing jason wu and his handwriting, this is certainly him. if you can read there from the top to the bottom, it says gold embellished ring. that ring around that haltar top portion of the dress was made by kimberly mcdonald. diamond encrusted. the other notes say draped chiffon with texture, red dye to match, duchess belt and column skirt. and you can see his signature, jason wu. really, really extraordinary. and he mentioned the surprise, shock, red carpet moment where these designers don't know. and i can tell you just by looking at jason wu's tweet tonight which said #in shock. he had no idea that this was going to happen. i spoke to one of his representatives, pretty high up tonight and she told me, you know, we had an
of a cliche that he looked you in the eyes and says no, but in all the time i had known him, he was always very adamant and aggressive in saying he hadn't dop doped. we were having a conversation, toward the end of all this, and i said, look, i got to tell you, i think you have doped. i'm pretty sure you have doped, and i'm at a point where i have to say something pretty soon. and he didn't deny doping. and there was -- you know, it sounds a little weird, but in context, there was just a moment where i was like, oh, he really did it. and that was -- there were plenty of other, you know, plenty of other people who had spoken up. there was always a lot of evidence, but that was the moment where i absolutely knew he had doped. >> what was his response to that cover story? >> he was mad. i got sort of the angry, screaming phone call. and you know, it's just -- of course, i would. and i thought that would be the last time i would ever talk to him. and then maybe three or four months later, we started having communication again, which i also found fascinating. >> betsy andruw, she was in a hospi
he did that well in school himself. this is a segment we call the botched cliche of the day senator edition. >> well, first off, we're not -- i'm not setting the bar like the kids have to become rocket surgeons. >> rocket surgeons. is that like tree surgeons? >>> next, let's take a look at this headline from the washington times. quote, reagan's home could become a parking lot for obama's library. we're looking at what you might call an extreme case of jumping the gun. this is an apartment building in the chicago neighborhood of hyde park where president reagan spent a bit of his childhood. the site is owned by the university of chicago and they're planning to tear it down to provide parking space for the expanding campus. cue the right wing. since the university of chicago could eventually be the site of barack obama's presidential library, isn't it possible that the parking lot might be for people who might want to visit the library which could destroy the place where ronald reagan spent less than a year of his youth? just think of the desecration. >>> a right wing explosion in su
is as a ocd self editor is how often really cliches will show up. and to me that is something i think if you just took even a mediocre speech, trimmed out the troeps, the comforting words, you know, then, you know, suddenly the thing, there are not enough words. you have to substitute in. maybe those are more truthful. but like in orwell's politics in language, certain are markers for insincerity and for an agenda. >> the word frankly, for instance. which is my favorite. >> honestly. >> yeah. >> the sort of familiar catch phrases you almost don't even read in a speech anymore. but i think what you notice in that clip is there was nothing. there was literally not a single one of those that was an originality of an expression and like that goosebumps the quickness with which a certain rhetorical trope came home. wow, that was perfect. that was fast. you know, that is something -- that's hard to talk about, i suppose. but language is power. and, you know, in that, you can really see it. >> he said that obviously he gave that speech after the reverend wright stuff blew up. one of the things that
of a job than in a job. and this notion of a lost generation, it sounds like a cliche. it's a reality because everything shows that if at the beginning of your professional career you're out of the jobs market six months to a year, you have a difficult time getting back in again. that is the situation that one-third of the unemployment in europe face. >> why do you think they've been comfortable with the price? >> the question i most free throwly get asked about youth unemployment, if it's going to create social instability, are we going to see a revolution crossing the mediterranean? and my answer to that is if you have 55%, 65% of young people out of work in your country, you have a social problem, you have a social stability threat. let's not wait to get to the edge of the abyss in those terms to act. the real trigger for action should be that there's a massive waste of economic resources and human rights. for the moment to move actually was yet yesterday. but let's do it now. >> we saw composite pmi today. there's one company that stood out, france. much weaker than expected. carl
